Circle the calendar. Tuesday was the day that the President of the United States called a female U.S. Senator a “whore.”

He didn’t exactly use that word. Worse: He tweeted that  Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, was a “total flunky” for U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer and “would do anything” for money. The President of the United States said that.

That was Trump’s tweeted response after Gillibrand called for his resignation.

It was left to battle-weary White House press secretary Sarah Sanders to spin it that people in politics often criticize  each other. But “whore”?  Implied, or otherwise?

Others who were outraged quickly noted that Trump, misogynist that he is, did not criticize several male Democratic senators who asserted that he should get out. Point made.
